Oh the beauty of...

Is there anything more beautiful than a blossoming Hydrangea? I don´t have green fingers, at all actually. But since I am slightly obsessed with keeping at least one or two Hydrangeas alive at the same time, for the general beauty and wellbeing they bring to a home, I have finally mastered to keep them alive. For rather long. The trick is no rocket science at all, just never, ever, let the Hydrangea dry out, or if you do for a short period, like a day maximum, you can still revive it with a lot of water. The important thing is to keep it moist all the time. My grandmother also told me to cover the Hydrangea in water in the sink, and when the Hydrangea stops bubbling it has had just the right amount of water. I still haven´t moved on to Hydrangeas outdoors yet, that is for me a master class, which I hope to challenge next year...maybe. But don´t you agree with me that real flowers, like a Hydrangea, brings wellbeing and beauty to every day life?

  1. sooo clean and so crisp! Looks like a refreshing place to relax and unwind!!! xx

  2. Oh I absolutely agree with you! The gorgeous hydrangea are blooming all over my neighborhood and they're just glorious. I love having fresh flowers around me at all times. It does wonders for the spirit.

    Hope you're having a wonderful day! :) xoxo

  3. Love it! So beautiful. Hydrangea is one of my top favorites.

    Lovely pics


  4. Så fantastiska bilder, och den blå färgen är ju bara så himla fin och känns så somrigt och fräscht! Ha en bra kväll! Kram Jennifer

  5. Makalöst vackert. Så läckert när det är i sådana mängder. Hur lyckas man med det?

  6. I'm a shocker when it comes to plants and flowers for that matter. I like them but I have no idea what they're called. From these pictures, I can see that Hydrangea looks best in a simple vase.

  7. Can you really manage, i would if i knew how to, send you a photo of my hydrangea. Its a sad story....

  8. Verkligen vacker blomma som jag också har här hemma. Hade dessutom en ute förra sommaren i kruka som jag sen planterade ut i trädgården (en trädgårdshortensia) men tyvärr har den inte riktigt blivit sitt forna jag igen...
    Kram Jannike

  10. Thanks for the tip on watering. I agree that fresh flowers are essential to a well kept home. I like little rosebuds in a vase in my bathroom.
